In the spring time Japan is famous for the cherry blossoms or sakura as they are known in Japan. However, the sakura only bloom for a little over a week! So you really have to plan in advance and pick a few spots that you want to go see that are in bloom. This year we were not very sure and ended up getting pictures close to home.
We had rainstorms during the bloom which prematurely ended the season. Overall my favorite picture I took you can not even tell their is sakura in the background. We have two more tries before we will be leaving Japan. I will have a better plan for next year!
